About this Item

A Portrait of Nezahualcoyotl, Poet-King of the Aztecs. University of New Mexico Press, 1949. Octavo, cloth, in a dust wrapper. 183 pages, illustrated. With a long signed inscription by Frances Gillmor on the half title. a little wear to dust wrapper, but still a very good copy of the First Edition. Biographical narrative of one of the three great leaders of the Aztec alliance, who lived from 1402 to 1472. "Against the strange, harsh background of Aztec wars and alliances, sacrifice and festival, he emerges in the role of engineer, codifier of Aztec law, organizer of a commission on arts and learning, spokesman of fragmentary and half-seen visions of a poet and philosopher, a capricious lover, and a father alternately stern and gentle. Full of contradictions, cruel and unscrupulous at times, yet he is unforgettable.And he is easily the most human figure to emerge from Aztec history.". Bookseller Inventory # 4954
